.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...HOT AND MAINLY DRY CONDITIONS ARE FORECAST
THROUGH THURSDAY AS A STRONG HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE REMAINS OVERHEAD.
BY LATE IN THE WEEK AND INTO THE WEEKEND...CLOUD COVER INCREASES
AND TEMPERATURES WILL BE SLIGHTLY COOLER...AS A FRONTAL BOUNDARY
APPROACHES SOUTH TEXAS ON FRIDAY. MOISTURE POOLING ALONG THE
BOUNDARY WILL PROVIDE FOR A CHANCE FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. A GENERALLY WEAK...MAINLY ONSHORE FLOW WILL
CONTINUE THIS WEEKEND... WITH BRIEF OFFSHORE WINDS SATURDAY
MORNING OVER MOST LOCATIONS.

* A LOW RISK OF RIP CURRENTS MEANS THAT ANY RIP CURRENTS THAT DO
  FORM ARE LIKELY TO BE WEAK BUT STILL MAY POSE A DANGER TO POOR
  SWIMMERS. RESEARCH HAS SHOWN RIP CURRENTS ARE TYPICALLY MORE
  FREQUENT IN THE VICINITY OF JETTIES...INLETS...AND PIERS AND
  THESE CAN BE QUITE STRONG ON DAYS WHERE THE OVERALL RIP CURRENT
  THREAT IS LOW...ESPECIALLY IF STRONG SOUTHERLY OR NORTHEASTERLY
  WINDS EXIST.

* WAVE HEIGHT AND PERIOD FORECASTS ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF DEEP OCEAN
  WAVES OVER THE OFFSHORE WATERS...NOT SURF CONDITIONS.
